The Racing Optimist class is an exciting opportunity to fully experience the fun and challenge of sailing at a higher level. Designed for students who have taken Intermediate Optimist or demonstrated an ability to handle the boat independently.
Students will develop racing concepts including starts, upwind and downwind sailing, as well as boat trim for speed, racing rules, strategy, tactics, and more.
We encourage sailors to register for multiple sessions and participate in the popular Twin Cities Youth Sailing regattas on Fridays. LCSS provides Optis and coach support for the TCYS regattas. Regatta entry fees are not included.
